Anyone seen those Jabba The Hutt t-shirts? They are pretty cool. If you enter the code: jobabronxblock, you can save $2.50 per tee. Get 'em while they're hot.
and these will quickly become vintage gear when Joba moves out of the "bullpen far far away."
I don't think anyone would confuse the shirt as being the property of Lucas, and I don't think it serves to dilute the mark, and it may be clever enough. In other words, you may be right.
Disney (sketching): You wanna be a star, right? Then TAKE IT OFF!!!
(Years later, former pitcher and current Mets "color man" Ron Darling is seen indescreetly escorting "Keisha" out of a night club in Atlanta by a very observant drummer... >;)
14 That's the kind of stuff that Disney goes after! ;)
The MLBPA and MLB Properties (I think they still are in charge of licensed gear?) might complain about the shirts. Because if anyone should make money off Joba's nickname, its him - by which they mean them.
And I know the Joba Jabba connection is way too easy, but doesn't anyone think Boba Fett would be a cooler comparison?
Joba Fett, the bounty hunter who's traveled from across the universe (well, Nebraska's pretty damn far from the Bronx) to return the World Series trophy to its rightful owners, the Evil Empire.
Kyle Farnsworth. Truly the gift that keeps on giving.
